Indian Legends

  • Read the story of Red Cloud, a real legendary chief of the Lakota tribe.  Then draw a portrait of the famous chief.  Use this tutorial, but after the basic face shapes are done use a portrait of Red Cloud to make it look like him.
  • Read a picture book story of an Indian Legend like “The Legend of the Indian Paintbrush” or another from your library.  Identify the story elements like setting, plot, characters, problem, and solution.  Then come up with your own modern story in this style.  Something like “how the truck got its bed” or “why the building grew so high” or “how the box learned to talk (radio or TV).”  Do a pre-writing activity where you identify all the story elements for your modern legend.  Then write the legend.
